Join us for this hands on experience of taking guns from police buy back programs and turning them into garden tools. Swords to Plowshares is an organization that visits communities and using a portable forge, transforms previously surrendered gun barrels. CBI is co-sponsoring this volunteer opportunity with Beth David and Beth El synagogues. Sign-up and try your hand at living out the Biblical call to turn “swords into plowshares”.

More information about Swords to Plowshares can be found at their website: www.s2pnortheast.org. This program is free but donations are welcome. Space is limited to 75 people and registration must be made in advance. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is at www.cbict.org.
